HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A Helena man accused of killing his upstairs neighbors because he thought they were being too loud has pleaded not guilty to two counts of deliberate homicide.

The Independent Record reports (https://goo.gl/rlmSKv ) 43-year-old Tilmon Nungesser IV entered his plea Thursday in the Feb. 20 shooting deaths of 40-year-old Robert Mishler and 42-year-old William Mishler, who were brothers.

Officers found the Mishlers dead in the hallway near their apartment and Nungesser in the basement hallway with blood spatter on his face and clothes. Investigators say Nungesser confessed to the shooting and pointed out the shotgun used to officers.

On Thursday, public defender Chris Abbott said Nungesser was an honorably discharged Marine and past heroin addict.

Nungesser is being held on $500,000 bail.
